NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich Beta3

Cool [3.Dec.2011] (Android 4.0.1) (AOSP ICS ROM for HD2) NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich Beta3

NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich is a HD2 ROM based on Nexus One's AOSP ICS ROM. (Thanks texasice for compiling it from the source code.)

  • Include tytung's ICS kernel.
  • Include tytung's ICS ramdisk (initrd.gz).
  • Include the required files (not in AOSP ICS) from my AOSP GB ROM (i.e. NexusHD2-Gingerbread).
  • Please give credits to texasice (for N1 ROM base) and me (for converting it to be compatible with HD2) respectively if you reuse any of our works. Thanks. 


  • Please use at least 200MB system partition and 2MB cache partition.
    • Please refer to ksubedi's HD2 NAND Toolkit and/or mskip's guide.
    • Cache partition is only used by CWM.
    • Cache partition size is not important because I use data partition as cache space when running Android.
    • If your HD2 has bad NAND blocks, you may need larger partitions.
  • Full Wipe.
  • Flash the ROM.
    • MAGLDR: Flash, then reboot.
    •   cLK  : Flash and, then reboot.
